Taking it all in!!

I just love this time of year.
It the time of year when I can leave my door open
and let the fresh breeze in. The outdoors come alive.
While I am feeling so lucky some are not.

As I was watching the News tonight I saw all
the devastation those tornadoes here in the states have done..
I really can't even  image going through any of that.
Pretty scary..   My prayers to out to all the
family's that these storms have affected .




So it's that  time in the week again for
 City Crafter Challenge.





Ros is our fabulous hostess this week and has us seeing double.
(Use the positive and negative of a punch or die).



So as you can see I made a little window with 
my Sizzix Dies..   I left the inside simple till I decide on
who I will give it to..  Maybe a thank you card or a birthday card
I don't know yet.. 




You know I had fun adding all those little extras that I love to add.
And of course I got this beautiful image from The Graphic Fairy.



So how about it.. Are you seeing double this week.
If you would like to play along you can hop on over to 
City Crafter Challenge Blog and get all the Details. 




Just look at this beautiful card I got in the
mail.. it came all the way from France. 


Thank you so much to Jacqueline 
for this beautiful card. 

She is the most inspiring Women I know. 
Trusting in God to get her through one of the most
difficult of times a women can go through.



She sent me this whole stack of French Wine labels.
I can't wait to play with them..  Thanks again Jacqueline




And I just want to say Thanks so much
for stopping by..  I really do appreciate all the sweet comments.


Hugs, Linda

Beautiful card, Linda, lovely image! Fabulous photo, so clear and in focus! Beautiful card from France as well. Have a wonderful Wednesday, it is sunny and windy here, look's like we are in for another storm.

Gayle said...

Hi Linda, yes I have seen the devastation of the tornados on tv. here in Aus. So destructive and frightening. Like you can not imagine....We, in Aus. are having major flooding on the east coast, lives lost and so much property damage. Thank goodness for blossom, there is still beauty left in this sometimes scary and crazy world. Love your sweet card you have made, beautiful details, love the window and your stitching is so perfect and neat, just beautiful. xx

Terry said...

It is so sad to look at all the devastation so many have endured due to the tornadoes. What is even more scary is the fact it is not tornado season and I just hope this will be the end of it!

What a pretty flower you have captured and of course your card is adorable! Love all the "Linda" details!

Have a great day!

Weren't those storms just aweful? One tornado touched down in Nebraska, but no real damage was done.

Super pretty card you made -- I wish I had your talent! :)

Catherine said...

Hearing about all those tornadoes helps me not to complain about the dump of snow we got last week! Very sad all those tornadoes.

Your flower is beautiful Linda as is your pretty card. Very sweet!
